I don't really see Brodie's status being tied too closely to the young D.  I think he is going nowhere, because they haven't found a dance partner since Kadri nixed the deal with the Laffs.

TSN had a story that the Flames are now in the market for another LD.

With Valimaki out, they want some insurance if Kylington struggles.  That is how I read the situation.  The easiest way is to sign a UFA with at least a little experience on LD.

The high-priced (maybe formerly) options include Dion Phaneuf, Andy MacDonald, Marc Methot, Niklas Kronwall & David Schlemko.
The mid-priced youngish guys that are probably out of the price range include Ben Hutton & Lucas Sbisa.
Younger guys with a sprinkle of experience that could be signed for an affordable price include Joe Morrow, Griffin Reinhart, Fredrik Claesson

Out of that bunch, the 2 that I would most likely consider are Morrow & Claesson.

The Flames need to dump Frolic's 4.3 mil for cap relief.

What they dont need is a 3rd pair D-man making 4 mil/yr for 2 years.

Thank you, no.

So much for someone's wishful thinking that Petrovic would sign here.

I'm assuming that's the PTO with Boston info?

While a little bit abnormal, a PTO doesn't preclude signing an actual contract with another team - didn't Versteeg do exactly that a few years ago?

I think Petrovic is mainly cover if that can't get McAvoy and Carlo under contract - he may still be available to other teams as the season approaches.

It just doesn't make a lot of sense

If the Flames wanted a large slow defender who couldn't even make Edmonton's 3rd pairing...,
they could have re-signed Prout or not bought out Stone.

But then again...,
They did trade for the 2nd worst contract available
